It's Tuesday 6th November because yesterday got eaten by locusts—in a good way. I spent time with loved ones and doing things I enjoy, so not going to apologize (much) for the delay. However, on this grey Tuesday morning, I'm using the Quantum tarot by Kay Stopforth and Chris Butler. I love working with this deck from time to time as I always learn something new. The information it contains is heavy! As always, you don't need to do anything to participate; just focus on the 3 cards and pick one, then look in the comments to see what the message from the universe is for you for the next few days. You can also read them from right to left, for a 3 card mini reading. If you'd like something more involved, Have a great week—what's left of it, then!
LEFT: Matter / Antimatter Annihilations
The science behind this card is that for every atom of matter there has to be an atom of antimatter. Antimatter has the same structure, but the opposite energy. They cannot coexist in the same space; they'll explode. Some readers call the Nine of Swords the nightmare card, and I tend to agree. It doesn't mean that your life is going to be a nightmare, though! What this card is telling you is to be very careful where you focus your thoughts. Like energy will always attract like energy, and by worrying about what might go wrong, you draw attention to that scenario, and strengthen the likelihood that it is going to manifest. The card is encouraging you to focus on what is positive and what is going right. Anything else is just a misuse of the imagination, anyway. Isn't it better to work with positive energy?
Middle: Fermions and Bosons
The science behind this card is a bit over my head, but here it is anyway. It's all to do with spins, which in quantum mechanics means the quality of a particle's momentum. A fermion is a particle with a non-whole number spin, like a fraction. A boson is a particle with a whole number spin. More than one boson can occupy the same space, but multiple fermions cannot. This card is asking you if you're feeling a bit crowded, and if it's time to move into a place where there's more solitude, and more peace. The Six of Swords may indicate a physical movement, like a holiday or a house move, or it may be something more metaphorical, such as distancing yourself from a toxic relationship, or unnecessary stress in your life. A different mental space makes all the difference...
The science behind this card is that Centaurus is a huge constellation containing the binary system Alpha Centari and containing the red dwarf Proxima Centari. If this were an astrological sign, it would be that of Chiron the Centaur. If you know your mythology you'll remember that Chiron was the wounded healer, hit by an arrow but unable to die. His quest to end his pain brought him much wisdom, and in the end, Zeus allowed him to die and placed him as a constellation in the sky. The Knight of Pentacles teaches you to be content with small steps, because they're still progress. The bigger the problem, the longer it's going to take you to find the solution, so kick back and try to enjoy the journey. One thing is for certain; this is a card of self-discovery, and if you're open to what life wants to teach you, you will learn wondrous things indeed.
